RE: Re: Commit failing for 5GB file.

Thanks for the reply and for thinking on the issue a bit. :)

I'm trying a 5GB file and it always fails <2GB and around 15 minutes into the upload. I tend to agree this is 95% a server side issue only. However, I wanted to bring the client side into the discussion just in case. Yes the error definitely sounds like a server side only, however, error statements and reporting mechanisms are written by humans.

Example from my experience: At previous company a developer wrote a client side app complete with error reporting. Extensive testing (V&V) followed before initial release. Shortly after customer deployment there were a number of reports of server side failures. After over a year of beating on the server developers it was discovered that the client could in fact drop the connection and report it as a "Server" side issue. All because the client developer missed one failure scenario and the default error report was "server side".

So..when someone just looks over the initial info and refuses to intertain the possibility that they cannot be at fault simply because of the verbiage of the error message without doing any investigation..I find myself sceptical.
